The Authority today unveiled its 5th Strategic Plan 2023-2027, which reflects its commitment to ensuring that all Kenyans have access to affordable, reliable, and high-quality communication services.

Through the new plan, the Authority has demonstrated its unwavering belief that digital access for all Kenyans is possible.

In a ceremony officiated by Mr. Eliud Owalo, the Cabinet Secretary for Information, Communication and the Digital Economy, the CA Director General Mr. David Mugonyi said the plan rests on four cardinal pillars: promotion of meaningful connectivity to ICT services, empowerment and protection of ICT consumers, fostering competitive ICT markets and emerging technologies, and enhancement of organizational efficiency and effectiveness.

“In a departure from past iterations, this strategic plan is focused on people. We believe digital access for all Kenyans is possible, and our mission is to enable the development of a sustainable digital society through responsive regulation of Kenya’s ICT sector,” Mr. Mugonyi said.

He added that the Authority, inspired by its mission to enable responsive and effective regulation, will drive the development of a sustainable digital society where innovation thrives, consumers are empowered, and technology products and services transform lives and communities.

The four pillars provide support for 17 strategic goals that cut across every sub-sector and priority areas from increasing broadband penetration, adoption of emerging technologies, improvement in cyber security, expansion of postal and courier services and the digital empowerment of women, the youth and people living with disabilities.

The Authority achieved a score of 72.6% in the implementation of the previous Strategic Plan and has put a target for this Strategic Plan at 95%.

According to Ms. Mary Mungai, the Chairperson of the CA Board of Directors emphasized that, by ensuring digital access for all, the Authority has committed to making ICTs the cornerstone of the country’s socio-economic progress, a way of life and a source of fulfilment for everybody.

“As a Board, we shall fully support the Management and staff of the Authority as we embark on this ambitious journey together, so that we can not only bring our vision to life, but also create a lasting impact on generations to come,” said Ms. Mungai.

Mr. Owalo said the Ministry remains alive to the need to accelerate digital transformation across all sectors of the economy and looking at some of the collaborations that have been earmarked in CA’s Strategic Plan.
